Advice for recorders of Patella depressa on iNaturalist & (in Britain) iRecord.

[Note that iNaturalist 'Research Grade' records from Britain are automatically passed to iRecord where they are assessed by accredited verifiers before being passed to NBN maps. On the P. depressa map at the real distribution is that of the crowded dots. The scattered dots are incorrect. The Marine Recorder of Concholgical Society of GB & Ireland and I are working to get them removed.]
Dear Recorder,
The shell of Patella vulgata is very often as low as on P. depressa, and is very frequently mistaken for it in Britain and Ireland. If yours is a dead, fresh shell, please remove loose debris and position it carefully to take 3 views, as at . A single exterior view is very unlikely to be sufficient for verification.

Records for P. depressa will only be accepted on iRecord with an image that shows some or all of these features:
1) dark brown/black foot (insufficient alone as P. vulgata sometimes as dark).
2) chalky white, opaque pallial tentacles around periphery (best seen when attached to glass in water, as on left of )
3) chalky white marks near tips of ribs on interior (may be lost by erosion).
4) apex of shell offset towards anterior (insufficient alone as applies also to P. ulyssiponensis).
5) interior colouring (often helpful, but not always because of wide variation).

Records claimed anywhere in Ireland, or out of area in Britain and northern Europe, as demonstrated by the map and caption at , require 1 & 2 for acceptance, as such records would change the understanding of this species. For full details please read the account at .

Because P. depressa is apparently one of the commonest limpet species in southern Europe there seems to be a tendency on iNaturalist for records of any limpet there to be identified by some recorders as it by default.
P. ullyssiponensis, P. vulgata and P. rustica are all widespread in Galicia. Southwards, they are joined by other limpet-form species, such as Siphonaria pectinata. Many of these may be mistaken for P. depressa when only a single exterior image is shown. In such cases, the generalised suggestion of ‘Patellogastropoda’ is likely (though S. pectinata is not in that subclass).
For Atlantic coasts of Iberia, a useful aid is Trigo et al. 2018. Guia de los Moluscos Marinos de Galicia.

2000 Observations

On 2019-11-05, I posted my 2000th observations, of a Shaggy Mane mushroom I found at Lagarde d’Apt in the French Provence, Alpes Cote d’Azur, on October 30th.
I put in a geek hour and ran the stats on the second batch of a thousand, just as when I had posted my first 1,000 observations (

The big differences:
1. Time spent on iNat:
0001-1000: 447 days / 64 weeks / nearly 15 months.
1001-2000: 134 days / 19 weeks / 4 months and a week.

2. Focus on insects and their relationships to plants:
0001-1000: Insects - 109 obs of 71 species; Plants - 98 obs of 90 species.
1001-2000: Insects - 391 obs of 169 species; Plants - 227 obs of 174 species.

3. Butterflies! 2019 was a great year for that.
0001-1000: 36 observations of 19 butterfly species.
1001-2000: 184 observations of 36 butterfly species.

In my first year on iNat, I focused on wildlife I can observe around my house and also spent a lot of time in the King Gillette Ranch area. In the second year I was nearly exclusively exploring the burn scar of the Woolsey Fire, which was the first fire I had experienced first hand, including evacuation etc., and contributed nearly 800 observations to But this had a slow start: For about three months after the fire, I was holed up and had to deal with the trauma, stress, sadness, and fear I had experienced. But as soon as I was able to face the devastation around me, I started to explore how nature dealt with it.

Percentages of Research Grade observations of the various kinds of wildlife are pretty similar. Birds, Mammals, Reptiles fare really well, Spiders, Funghi, Plants and Insects could use more identifiers.

1001-2000 Species All obs RG obs % 0001-1000
RG percentage
Birds 110 248 246 99% 157 species / 644 obs 100%
Amphibians 4 9 9 100% 3 / 8 100%
Reptiles 5 11 11 100% 6 / 20 95%
Mammals 14 35 33 94% 15 / 68 97%
Fishes 8
11 10 90% 7 / 7 57%
Mollusks 8 8 8 100% 7 / 7 85%
Arachnids 13 22 13 59% 5 / 10 60%
Insects 169 391 328 84% 71 / 109
Plants 174 227 164 72% 90 / 98 71%
Funghi 19 28 17 61% 2 / 2 50%
protozoans 0 0
unknown 0 0
Overall 434 1000 846 85% 380 species / 1000 obs 933 obs / 93%

Some more data points:
331 identifiers, and counting.

105 observations of 71 invasive species
24 observations of 13 threatened species

775 observations of 407 species in L.A. County
84 observations of 73 species in Ventura County
106 observations of 77 species in Germany
35 observations of 33 species in France

Europe: 141 obs / 107 species / need ID: 15 obs / 14 species
USA: 859 obs / 431 species / need ID: 137 obs / 114 species

Most observed:
16 Northern White-Skipper
13 Orange Sulphur and Acmon Blue
12 Common Buckeye and Lorquin’s Admiral
10 Gray Hairstreak and Cabbage White
9 Monarch and Checkered White
8 RT Hawk

212 Butterflies and Moths observations of 55 species
184 Butterflies observations of 36 species - 3 need ID
15 Bumble Bees observations of 9 species

1 banded bird (a W Gull who I reported to USGS who traced it).

18 popular observations, most popular with two stars of a Western Fence Lizard on a burned tree trunk

During the 2018-2019 newt migration season, we recorded 4,887 newt roadkill victims along with 69 individuals of other species. To date, no mitigations have been put in place, other than the SCC Road Dept. installing eight "Newt Crossing" signs. Therefore, we can probably expect similar road mortality numbers for the upcoming migration season, which will probably commence within two weeks. It's unknown how many newts live in the mountains above Lexington Reservoir. I believe this population is in danger of extermination. How many years can it survive this high mortality rate?

Progress Report:
A dedicated group of professionals is still trying to identify the most appropriate mitigation(s) for the newt mortality on Alma Bridge Rd. and gain funding for the project. The group includes people from the following agencies: UC Davis Road Ecology Dept, Santa Clara County (SCC) Parks & Recreation, (SCC) Roads Dept., Audubon Society, Sierra Club, CA Fish & Wildlife Dept, and Western Ecological Research Center (USGS).

In April, 2019, Dr. Fraser Shilling, UCD Road Ecology Dept., submitted a grant proposal to the CA Wildlife Conservation Board, but without luck. There were too many worthy causes vying for limited funds. He'll try again this coming year.

Volunteers Needed:
The above professionals want to continue to monitor the newt mortality on Alma Bridge Rd. during the upcoming 2019-2020 migration season in order to establish a baseline that can be used to determine the efficacy of any mitigations put in place. I cannot continue this work because I'm currently battling an aggressive cancer. Therefore, I'm asking for volunteers who might be interested in continuing the work @merav and I started last season.

To give you an idea of the amount of work required:
Timeframe: mid-November through mid-April
Frequency: twice per week
Total data collection days: 52
Length of road: 4.1 miles
Observations & photos submitted to iNaturalist: >5,000

Obviously, if more people are involved, the less work for each individual. Meanwhile, if you're hiking in the Lexington Reservoir area, please record any roadkill you come across in the iNaturalist database.

Unbelievable amount of green still out there

A 6-mile walk home from the "Y" (HWY50/SR89) and through Washoe Meadows State Park yesterday yielded a bunch of green-leaved plants. Hard to believe considering we're in the middle of November!

Although I found the Oregon Grape in town, the other four specimens were all located in a boggy section of the state park.

Mystery Frog in White River

Several years ago Ninda Baptsita discovered a species of Leaf-folding frog (Afrixalus spp.) in a pond near Swartfontein, White River which looked like an Afrixalus fornasini but with the two dorsal stripes divided in the posterior part.

This could be a new species!

All budding herpetologists are encouraged to try to collect a live specimen of the frog or tadpole during the Wessa Bioblitz Challenge 2019.

UPDATE: Hong Kong Social Unrest

Dear Participants and School Representatives,

Firstly, thank you so much for all of your work in mobilising your students, staff and communities for the HKISCNC, especially with the current social unrest.

While we would like your students and staff to still be a part of the identification process, we understand that your schools are having to make tough decisions regarding staying open or closed and we sympathise with the stress that you all must be going through. With this in mind, we will extend the ID period deadline to 6pm, Friday 22nd November but will consider more alternatives if needed.

For all of you iNaturalist Identifiers out there, THANK YOU SO MUCH. We appreciate every single one of your efforts and I'm sure you have made a positive impression to many of our participants.

As you may know, the current political and social unrest has now limited our volunteers and students' capacity to be fully involved in the HKISCNC and this has affected our ability to offer IDs to our observations. We are trying to manage this as best we can yet we would appreciate your continued assistance especially up until our new deadline.

Thanks everyone and stay safe.

Plastic debris from tyres and synthetic fabrics are a major source of ocean pollution

2017 BBC News article by Helen Briggs.

"Microplastics from tyres and textiles are a bigger source of marine pollution than the breakdown of larger plastic waste in some areas, says the IUCN - International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Our daily activities, such as washing clothes and driving, significantly contribute to the pollution choking our oceans, with potentially disastrous effects on the rich diversity of life within them, and on human health."

Drivers beware: It’s deer mating season.

Caltrans crews had to remove several dead deer along Interstate 80 in the Auburn area over Veterans Day weekend.

"That becomes a dangerous animal at some point when the mating season comes upon us, which is pretty much right now," said California Department of Fish and Wildlife Capt. Patrick Foy.

Earlhamites on iNaturalist! Who's missing?

I've created a project to highlight the Earlham students, grads, faculty, staff, and friends who are on iNaturalist. I started with a handful of people but I know I'm missing many! Please leave a comment if you'd like me to add your usename to the project.

Here's who I've added so far: @suzobr @carrieseltzer @billearlham @eliana @hlerner @mglerner @miles10 @annalisagross @tayloab @mattgrosso @hoppese @adambee @stxwild @dotty @desertbirder49 @txbrush5 @mountainwilliam48 @carlsca @misha5 @permaculturechris

If you join the project, it will indicate on your observations that they're included in the project (and thus helping spread the world about Earlham). So, please click to join the project.

Has anyone added observations from their off-campus program? I haven't made it that far into my observation backlog yet ;-) (and it will involve scanning photos!).

Prepping for Saturday

Looks like we will be in for some cool and cloudy weather, so dress accordingly. Water levels on the river are low and precipitation has been negligible, so I don't anticipate overly muddy conditions except in the channel and slough areas. Wear sturdy boots or mucks, not tennis shoes, denim pants and long-sleeve shirts, as the terrain is uneven and filled with fallen logs (yaaay for the salamanders!) and trip hazards such as blackberry vines. Don't forget lunch, snacks, and a water bottle. I will have water available for refills as well. The site is primitive, so prepare accordingly.

Don't forget to have your volunteer paperwork ready to go when we meet at the office at 8 am. Make sure your phone is charged up and if you have an external battery you might think to bring it along. The address is 7118 NE Vandenberg Avenue in Adair Village. Go north on Highway 99 about 5 miles past the hospital. Turn right on Vandenberg Avenue (Farm Food restaurant is located on the corner). Turn right again into the second drive and park. From there we will carpool to the site.

I look forward to meeting everyone and thank you for your participation and interest!
